Derrick Jackson speaking at exhibit

Mr. Jackson addresses the attendees at the exhibit.

I was privileged to meet Boston Globe Op-Ed columnist Derrick Jackson last night while shooting his photography exhibit at MCLA (http://www.MCLA.edu). Proceeds from the event benefited mulicultural programs and scholarships. He claims photography is a hobby, but I would pit his photography against any professional photographer out there. I was truly inspired to pursue more wildlife photography after viewing his work. His press credentials with the Globe allows access to political and sporting events that give him some enviable angles at events and his natural eye and talent are clear in his work. His Obama Inaugural and campaign photos are extraordinary.
